Just another pity, just another shame - Just Another Train
I've learned that I have little tolerance for self-pity. It's a horrible character flaw. Some are victims of circumstance. Others create their own pile of troubles and do nothing to dig their way out. For the vicitms, I have compassion. The others, almost disgust. I hate feeling that emotion but it exists. I don't know what's more depressing - watching someone self-destruct or lacking full compassion for them. It seems I can't do one without the other. But I need to find a new perspective.
